Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be looking at squares split into quarters. 


Squares can be split into four parts like this:


 square split into 4 parts 


Quarters are when a whole shape or object has been split into four equal parts. 

Equal means exactly the same.

So a square split into equal parts means four parts that are exactly the same size. 

Here is a square split into equal parts which means it is split into quarters. 


 square split into 4 parts 


Can you see that each part is exactly the same size this time?


Sometimes we need to find one quarter of a square. This means that the square must be split into quarters and one of the quarters will be shaded a different colour like this:


 square split into 4 parts with one shaded  


Shall we tackle some of these questions now?
